Härnevi Church is located in an idyllic village environment with lush trees and tarred bell tower. Even the old church stalls remain along the town street.
During the summer, the church is open every day and you can have a good lunch in the little red-painted parish home. There are schoolchildren who take care of the cafe and bake.
The church is filled with pictures from floor to ceiling. Sweden's foremost medieval artist, Albertus Pictor, painted a summer in the 1480s the walls and roof of the little church with biblical images, story-telling stories and mysterious animals and creatures. Here you can go for a long time and look, there are lots of exciting details to discover; do not miss, for example, the poor saint Erasmus who gets her intestines recovered on a tissue while cooking in oil! You will find it on the right wall, while in the roof you can see a nice picture of Samson and the lion. Also known is the pig who plays the organ. Albertus Pictor was not only a prominent artist but also a talented musician, perhaps the organ-playing pig was a comment on how he thought the office in Hevnevi played….
